Kisaragi Arm Chair


Kisaragi Arm Chair


The Kisaragi collection is an ode to a classic, yet underutilized wood in furniture. Kisaragi means “the renewal of plants” in Japanese, and this collection is named for its loving treatment of Japanese cedar. Each piece exudes a sense of refinement, showing off the textured colors and pleasant aroma unique to Japanese cedar. Typically speaking, Japanese cedar is a soft wood, but with an innovative treatment that compresses the wood, this set is engineered for durability, able to preserve the wood’s natural beauty for years.

The Kisaragi Chair won the Good Design Gold Award 2014.
